Thursday, August 28, 2014 by Mark Richardson

Reyne Telles, media manager for the city’s Public Information Office, has accepted the position of executive director for the Department of Communications and Community Engagement with the Austin Independent School District. Telles is a seven-year veteran at the city and most recently has served as director of communications for Mayor Lee Leffingwell. “I am thankful for the opportunity, excited and know that the challenges will be great,” he told the Monitor on Wednesday. City Manager Marc Ott said, “I wish Reyne the best of luck, thank him for his nearly seven years of service to the City of Austin and look forward to working collaboratively with him in his new role.” Telles has a Bachelor of Science in communication from Eastern New Mexico University and is currently pursuing a master’s degree from the University of Texas LBJ School of Public Affairs. Telles will start with AISD on Sept. 29.
